Majestic TD2220U 12vdc Marine LCD TV

Just a head's up. If anyone is contemplating purchasing the Majestic TD2220U 12Vdc/120-240Vac "High Definition" marine-grade television, just be aware that the true pixel resolution appears to be 1366x768.

I saw an ad for one at pyacht.com, and googled around a bit for info, and seemed to find that it was only 640x480, so I fired off an e-mail to pyacht, and they contacted Majestic directly, who responded to me. We've been going back a forth a bit, and I'll let the board know what the situation really is.

The TV seems to be at an ok price of at $550 for the 22" model with built-in DVD. It has HDMI, DVI, VGA, NTSC, S-Video and PC-Audio(analog? digital?) inputs, and both digital ATSC and analog tuners. The glossy flyer Majestic sent to me says the resolution is 1920x1080, but was told in an earlier e-mail that the resolution was the lesser 1366x768. I'm waiting for clarification.

Even at 1366x768, it's probably a good deal for TV and video viewing, but since I use my current Viewsonic at 1680x1050 for general PC work, I don't know if I can go back to a lower resolution.

Like I said above, I'll followup when I get more details.

I do not see any mention of multi-tuner...IE (NTSC & PAL).
If your goning to travel outside the US, your going to want a PAL tuner

I have search on the internet that LCD TV that you are mentioning in your post. Luckily, I have found some information and photos. And I think you are right that if we are considering to buy an LCD TV, we should buy this one.

A 'marine grade' piece of electronic gear *SHOULD* have some consideration given in its construction to the salty atmosphere it will be exposed to.

Good marine grade gear will have a conformal coating applied to the printed circuit board and components which is designed to reduce the occurance of corrosion and moisture ingress.

However, in saying that, many manufacturers are quite liberal using the term 'marine grade' and may not in fact have done anything different.

I'm an electronics tech by trade. The Raymarine gear on my boat is what I consider to be an example of good marine electronics design, however the GME cd/dvd/radio that came with the boat is not... I'm on the second one now and will look elsewhere when this fails.

Could you please tell me if this TV operates directly from 12 volts. The set I have now has to go through my inverter, which has too large a drain while anchored.

Thanks
